Most will admit, that a AV alone is not the answer. But it still ranks at the top in my viewpoint for protection. There has to be a viable alternative that at some point is going to come through with a "almost cure all" in protection. It wont come as a suite, but it may come from one of the AV vendors, but somewhere out there a product is lurking that will finally standout as a stand alone contender. I honestly feel SafeSpace was on the right track but that doesnt matter anymore. Someone is going to create a product that is simple to use, but protects you in all aspects of security. All I see now are ever ending betas. But I still think, or hope, the day is coming. I grow tired of "almost rans" in the security field.
